    On today, of all days…War Eagle!

    Today is the Iron Bowl.  I don’t have to repeat all the things that have been said about why this game isn’t just another Iron Bowl, it’s THE Iron Bowl, BCS, etc., etc. You already know. So there’s this… That’s about all I can think about today. See you in Twitterland!  (For some previous football posts, click here.) War Eagle!

    Move over Monday, the weekend’s still with me

    So it’s Monday. And, of course, no one likes a Monday. So I’m just gonna cruise on back through the weekend, because it provided a couple of such memorable moments, they’re still hanging on and making me smile, even well into a very busy Monday. It’s beginning to look a lot like… First of all, hubs had to work a little late Friday night, and BB went to spend the night with his grandmother. (He is a mama’s boy, but having been sick and home from school much of the week, just might have had just a little too much motherly TLC. Or hovering, whatever. To-may-to, to-mah-to.) This meant that…
